ASRock P67 Motherboards vs X58 and Intel Core i7-950 Review
Over the past couple of years one motherboard manufacturer has impressed us more than any other. That manufacturer is ASRock who have gone from a brand with an average reputation to one of the leading players in the motherboard marketplace. Initially they focused on value however as their resources have increased so has the quality of the products they produce and now, with each new model, they add additional features which make them stand out from many of the other major manufacturers.
Today we have two of ASRock’s P67 based boards on our test bench and will be putting them through a selection of real world and synthetic tests. To keep things interesting for those who have already seen a number of P67/Sandy Bridge articles, in this review we will put the ASRock systems up against the similarly priced X58 / Core i7-950 combination to see if these new products offer better performance and value for consumers than Intel’s now ageing high end platform.
